Congrats on the marriage! Really have nothing to help you with but do have a suggestion. Hopefully you are researching in Gibson County as well as Crockett County TN (Davy Crockett lived in Gibson County, and his mother's house is a museum in Rutherford-Gibson County TN). Joe Bone is the director of the Davy Crockett Museum in Rutherford and knows much about the history. Maybe he could help. Hope you find your connections.
